Crocodiles Living Millions of Years Ago Were 27-Feet Long

The fossilized remains of a crocodile that measured longer than 27 feet and lived 2 million to 4 million years ago has been found in Kenya.

While the animal resembles the current Nile crocodile, it displays a different skull and jaw, suggesting it isn’t directly related, said a report on the discovery published in the Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology. The crocodile lived side-by-side with humans, who at the time were about 4-feet tall, the report's author said in a statement.
